I posted on the X with no response, so I figured I'd try the Hulk for some input. I just replaced my old hood seal on my '93 B1 with a seal from Watcon. Seal looks great, but when I left the hood latched over nite and opened the next morning, I noticed the imprint from the hood was only showing for the front and rear of the seal. The sides remained pretty untouched (no groove left in seal).

Not sure if this will be an issue, but I assumed it would have made a groove all the way around the seal. See pics below:
